Taissa Farmiga met with artistic director Scott Elliott at the behest of her manager, as she told Playbill:
“I had a great conversation with him [for] about an hour and a half. We just talked about everything--from life to acting to theatre and me wanting to jump into it, [but] not knowing what I should do… I asked him that and he said, ‘Well, you can do my play/’ Later that night, my manager called me and said Scott loved you and would absolutely love it if you could do his play. I just thought he was joking.”
